Lutz Bacher
1943–2019

Introduction

Lutz Bacher (21 September 1943 – 14 May 2019) was an artist closely associated with Berkeley, California since the 1970s, and who lived and worked in New York City from 2013 until her death. The name Lutz Bacher was a pseudonym, and the artist did not publicly reveal a former name. She was once considered a figure with "cult" status—known for being "legendary but elusive" in the California art scene. Since the early 2000s, her work increasingly gained mainstream recognition.

Lutz Bacher was married to the astrophysicist Donald C. Backer for almost 40 years.
